Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some tracks can have several thousand ratings)

One of the better tracks on the album. Syncopated drum beat, jangly guitar riff and a sound thats a touch experimental. Early days - much better to come.
Has a nice jangly guitar sound on it. Maybe the Byrds heard this before they recorded Mr. Tambourine man. Anyway, it's nothing special, but it's certainly enjoyable and has a more aggressive sound than any of the other tracks on the album.
Love this song! Album highlight definitely.
I really enjoyed the vocal melodies here.
